Sa’hetxw Consulting is an Indigenous Consulting company in Kamloops, BC. We work hard to help Indigenous communities and organizations strengthen the community, control their future, and realize their dreams.

Connecting with members, understanding new roles and responsibilities, and governing fairly and conscientiously are vital to a community or organizational success.

Without in-depth knowledge, learned experience from other Indigenous’ communities and organizations, training, and expert guidance, the road to sustainability is often very challenging. Luckily, you can simplify the process.

Sa’hetxw Consulting, headed by our president Jamie Sterritt, offers the insights and training you need to overcome barriers and drive success. Your community or organization can plan for the future, govern well, and build the necessary foundation to provide better services, set long-term goals and attract opportunities.

Tangible, Actionable Training and Guidance around building Self-Governance Capacity

Our company repeatedly proves it is possible to establish good governance practices to support and expand opportunities. Strong governance leads to improved programs and services and successful, sustainable economic development. However, we also understand good governance is about more than financial gain.

Caring for the land, improving health, and providing educational opportunities are equally important drivers. Preserving language and culture, reflecting community needs, and working with government, regulatory, and outside agencies are vital to community success. We want you to learn how to plan and govern for a stronger, happier, healthier community
